  1. Hi There,
    Thank you for the amazing content, I am here for a month and I learned a lot.
    The only thing I would say is that it would very helpful for the tutorials if you had shared the reference images, in the case of this keybord for example, it is something for you to think for future classes, it is a bit disapointing when we don’t have references, I did not follow the turorial because of it.
    Anyways, I am very grateful for all I learned here, I absolutely love your work Karl, since the very first tutorials of yours I saw on youtube few years ago, you are a absolutely star, I know you already know that, but I would like to say it to you anyway!
    Thank you so much!!

    1. Hi, thank you for your feedback. We want to take on board any suggestions from our audience but I’m not completely familiar with this class as it was taught by Corey, could you explain what you mean by reference images and at what time in the video you refer to and then we will see if we can make those changes. Thank you.
